  The Tokushukai Scholarship Foundation
  (Old-Name; The Yokoyama Scholarship Foundation)

1.Purpose of Establishment
 After a decade of turbulent years and drastic changes in the world order, we are 
 experiencing unprecedented increase in the level of cooperation, economic interdependence 
 and integration among countries around the world. In such environment, no country is able 
 to sustain, develop itself and contribute to the prosperity of the entire globe without taking 
 cooperative actions with other countries. Indeed, due to internationalization and development 
 of the Japanese economy, interactions between Japan and other countries have increased, 
 and it is anticipated that expectations and interests toward Japan will intensify further.

 On the other hand, international community has, in some occasions in the past, expressed 
 mistrust and criticism toward Japan. In view of this, Japan must endeavor to promote 
 mutual understanding and friendship among countries.

 The Tokushukai Scholarship Foundation is dedicated to contribute to the core of 
 genuine understanding and friendship between people of different cultures through 
 educational, artistic and cultural exchanges. For this purpose, The Tokushukai 
 Scholarship Foundation seeks to provide scholarship awards to a wide range of foreign 
 students in Japan thereby contributing to the promotion of mutual understanding and 
 friendship.
